Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness is a common symptom experienced by women going through menopause AND perimenopause. It is part of what is termed the “genoturinary syndrome of menopause” (GUSM). It occurs due to decreased estrogen levels, leading to a lack of lubrication and discomfort in the vaginal area. GUSM may also include bladder infections and leakage of urine amongst other symptoms.

Approximately 70% of women going through menopause AND perimenopause experience vaginal dryness and/or other symptoms of GUSM. It is a prevalent symptom that can impact sexual functioning and overall quality of life.

The most effective treatments for vaginal dryness include local estrogen therapy, which can be administered as vaginal creams, tablets, or rings. Non-hormonal options like vaginal moisturizers and lubricants can also provide relief and improve comfort during intercourse.

On average, approximately 70-80% of women report a reduction in vaginal dryness symptoms after two months of starting menopause treatment, whether through local estrogen therapy or non-hormonal options.
